iok- Indic Onscreen Keyboard SYNOPSIS
iok [-a] [-h] [-d 1] [-n LANGCODE] DESCRIPTION
Indic Onscreen Keyboard currently shows Inscript and Inscript2 keymaps for 22 official Indian languages. The languages are Assamese, Bengali, Bodo, Dogri, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Kokani, Maithili, Malayalam, Manipuri, Marathi, Nepali, Oriya, Punjabi, Sanskrit, Santali, Sindhi, Tamil, Telugu. The iok application runs in default and advanced mode. In default mode, iok starts by loading Inscript2 keymap of the current locale. If keymap is not installed or available then iok shows keymap list in the default mode. User can then select any keymap from keymap list if he want to write using it. In the advanced mode, iok allows one to open non-supported keymaps. If keymap can be parsed by iok then it will be showed in iok UI otherwise it will show error message that iok can't load this keymap. Advanced mode also allows one to create custom keymap by either swap- ping or re-assigning character mappings in the existing loaded keymap in iok. Another feature iok supports is Drag and Drop. This will allow user to swap character mappings using mouse. The keymap list shows Inscript and Inscript2 keymaps from location /usr/share/m17n and ~/.m17n.d path. To start iok in normal mode from console, use following command iok To start iok in advanced mode from console, use following command iok -a To start iok in any supported Inscript2 keymap (say in Marathi) use following command iok -n mr As Inscript2 keymap naming also uses language script code for some languages, command to open those keymaps is like this iok -n pa-guru where pa is a isocode name for the Punjabi language and guru is a language script code name in which keymap is written. To use Drag and Drop feature of iok, start iok from console as iok -d 1 The Draft version of Inscript2 keymaps are available at This project is available at or OPTIONS
-a It shows the menus and combo box in iok UI -h It show the help -d 1 This will enable Drag and Drop feature only for the single iok invocation. Otherwise iok has disabled Drag and Drop by default. -n LANGCODE In the place of LANGCODE,you need to specify a particular language code. Shows iok UI for that particular language. This will also requires language script code. e.g. for Bodo, Dogri, Kokani, Nepali, Sindhi use its langcode and "-deva" as a language script code. To start iok using Kokani keymap, run "iok -n kok-deva" AUTHOR

ttmkfdir - Utility to create fonts.scale files for truetype fonts SYNOPSIS
Originally written by Joerg Pommnitz, ttmkfdir is a tool to create valid and complete fonts.scale file from TrueType fonts. It is very useful when you plan to use a TrueType enabled font server that is based on the X11R6 sample implementation (xfsft for instance). Great care has been taken to correctly identify the encodings that a given TrueType font supports. The ttmkfdir comes with Red Hat Linux has experienced quite some modifications or improvements, include: - migration to FreeType 2 library - more accurate checking for big font files - support for both two X core font backends, Freetype and XTT - Truetype collection(ttc) font file support - additional CJK friendly features - bug fixes OPTIONS
Here is the detailed usage of Red Hat version of ttmkfdir. -h, --help It shows the menus and combo box in iok UI -e, --encoding <encodings.dir> ttmkfdir is doing its job by checking each TrueType font file against fontenc layer, please refer for details. Default encodings.dir file is /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/encodings/encodings.dir -o, --output Specify output, default is fonts.scale in the current directory -d, --font-dir Specify TrueType font directory, default is the current directory -f, --default-foundry Specify name of the default font foundry, default is "misc" -m, --max-missing Specify the maximum number of missing characters per encoding, default is 5. This option applies to the encoding that has less than 256 codepoint definitions. -a, --max-missing-percentage Specify the maximum percentage of missing characters per encoding, default is 2. This option applies to the encoding that has more than 256 codepoint definitions. -b, --font-backend For X FreeType backend, use value "1", for XTT backend use value "2", default value is 1. When you have TrueType Collection font(.ttc), you need to use this option. -x, --additional-entries Additional entries mean those extra TTCaps stuff for XTT backend, mainly for bold and italic font support. Or for FreeType backend, because FreeType still doesn't support bold and italic font, ttmkfdir can generate extra "dummy" XLFDs, so applications who asking those fonts won't complain. Default value is "0" means off,otherwise use "1" to switch it on. -c, --completeness use less strict completeness tests for encoding tables -p, --panose use panose information AUTHOR
